BENEFITING: Brigham and Women's Hospital

ORGANIZER: Brigham and Women's Hospital

EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013

Susan Bird

THE STORY:

I will be running the 2013 Boston Marathon for the Brigham and Women's Hospital Charity, Team Stork!

This charity is of particular importance to me, for two reasons:

1. I first hand witnessed close friends rely on a NICU to provide wonderful care for their newborns. These doctors and nurses go beyond the call of duty to provide key medical and emotional support during this very scary time in a parents life.

2. I collaborate with a Brigham and Women's NICU nurse on research that promotes the development of non-invasive screening methods for vulnerable premature infants.

Please help me raise money to benefit this wonderful organization!!! Every little bit helps and is appreciated ...

$ 26.20   = 1$ for every mile I run during the race

$ 42.16   = 1$ for every kilometer I run during the race

$ 80.00   = 20$ for every month of  training

$ 100.00 = 10$ for every toenail I will lose during training

$ 120.00 = 1$ for every hill I run during  training

$ >150.00 = I'll send you a personal baked goods thank you package!

 

Please read below for more details on this amazing charity ...

Founded as Team Brigham in 1998, our runners have collectively raised $5.5 million for vital patient and community health programs at BWH and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital.

In 2013, Team Stork will raise money for the Stork Fund at BWH, which promotes clinical care, research, and education for healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Together, Team Stork and the Stork Fund will give all babies at BWH the best possible chance at a healthy life.

Team Stork fundraising will MAKE A DIFFERENCE by providing critical resources to the following initiatives:

  • BWH’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, whose skilled and compassionate staff help premature babies beat the odds and go on to live long, healthy lives.
  • Our Birth Equity Initiative, increasing access to timely, high-quality healthcare services, reducing birth disparities in infant mortality and low birthweight, specifically among infants born to black women.
  • The Center for Maternal Fetal Medicine, providing dedicated care to women and newborns with complications identified before and during pregnancy.
  • Our Center for Infertility and Reproductive Surgery, transforming what’s possible in reproductive medicine and answering the hopes of many parents.
  • Additional programs and initiatives that focus on the best possible outcomes for babies and moms.

Whether a first-timer or veteran marathoner, you’re invited to join Team Stork and this group of extraordinary individuals who choose to run the Boston Marathon for more than the 26.2-mile adventure.

Help all babies have a chance at a healthy life. Join Team Stork today at teamstork.org.
